The Cotswolds need no introduction, it is a well-established timeless part of the English countryside. Stretching across six counties and unsurprisingly, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) the Cotswolds encapsulate the quintessential charm of rural England. The Cotswolds is synonymous with its enchanting villages, each boasting distinctive honey coloured limestone buildings that seem to glow in the warm sunlight. One cannot mention the Cotswolds without picturing the iconic Arlington Row in Bibury, often described as the most beautiful village in England. Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, and Bourton-on-the-Water are equally captivating, each offering a unique blend of historic architecture, charming shops, and cosy tearooms. With the picturesque, gorgeously coloured stone villages and market towns come some of the region’s finest Churches to be married, such as the famously photographed St.Edwards in Stow-on-the-Wold or the Church of St John the Baptist in Burford.
The undulating hills of the Cotswolds create a patchwork quilt of fields and golden stone villages. The Cotswold Way, a 102-mile-long trail, winds its way through this picturesque landscape, offering walkers stunning views of the countryside. Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds, provides panoramic vistas that stretch as far as the eye can see. Whether exploring on foot, by bike or from the comfort of a car, the Cotswolds’ landscapes are a feast for the senses.
